Shar has decided to write about herself in third person today. She is often criticised by her sister for not blogging enough, so now she is going to tell you her rather vague, more nebulous reading goals.
1. Write down everything she reads
Shar can’t be bothered to get a goodreads account, but she is (has?) going to write down everything she reads, so she’s not just like ‘oh yeah I think I reared that, no idea what it’s about or how long ago’
2. Read some classics
Because some of them are all right, and it’s good for build vocabulary and stuff.
3. Review more books
Because it’s a good way to think about them
4. Read some non fiction
Because it makes her feel knowledgable. Also, non fiction books she read last year, like Blink: The power of thinking without thinking, I am Malala, This Star Won’t Go out, and Popular have all been quite good. She real wants to read more Malcolm Gladwell.
4.1 Read the newspaper
Because then she will feel like she knows about what is happening in the world. Specifically the Guardian Weekly, because that is the best newspaper.
5. Read in Hindi
Because otherwise she’ll lose all the progress she made last school year, side she’s not taking hindi any more.
Are these goals too nebulous? Does shar have to add numbers to quantify her achievement? IS this just a copy of Shanti’s post? Why is it that they had such similar reading goals without discussing it with each other? Shar is asking all the right questions.
